What is therapy to me?

Therapy to me is a collaborative journey between a client and therapist to discover the issues that may be of concern to the client, eventually leading to healing and growth.

Therapeutic approach:

I believe that therapy involves creating an empathetic, safe and non-judgmental environment for the clients. While I have a strong psychoanalytical foundation, my approach is primarily client-centered and compassion-focussed. I attempt to develop tailormade intervention plans for my clients, and often resort to an eclectic approach based on the client’s needs.

She strongly emphasizes the importance of incorporating a holistic model of services that takes into consideration the mental/emotional, physical/biological, social, community and the spiritual aspects of the client to ensure well-being and self-sufficiency. Her theoretical orientation is primarily client-centered; however, she is eclectic in her approach and often integrates other models of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Compassion based therapy, Mindfulness based therapy, Emotion focused therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy.

What is therapy to me? 

Therapy to me is the confidence, courage, and comfort to be emotionally naked and candid with your therapist to become a better version of yourself . In therapy, what a client requires is not someone with a brilliant mind sitting across from them, but someone with a patient heart that listens to them. On these principles, my sessions are built from the foundations of progressive and solution focussed therapies which are navigated with the ingredients of empathy, commitment, mindfulness, compassion, and sensitivity such that my clients have the confidence, comfort, courage, and permission to explore their self, their worries, their unsaid fears and secrets, their pain, their trials and tribulations, their relationships and its dynamics and their existential crisis and their purpose of life. 

Therapeutic approach:

My approach is primarily client-centered. I strongly emphasize the importance of incorporating a holistic model of services that takes into consideration the mental/emotional, physical/biological, social, community, and spiritual aspects of the client to ensure *their* well-being and self-sufficiency. I believe in nurturing and modeling a safe and empowering*environment* that can aid a patient to clarify problems, set goals, and implement teachings and learnings from therapy. I strongly advocate psycho-education and am very proactive with the mantra, ” Help my client to help themselves” I take a collaborative approach where I work with you to help you come up with the goals for the sessions, gain insight about the concern/s and *discover healthy* coping mechanisms. I also believe that the therapist is like a guide who helps you make a better decision for yourself.My approach depends on the concerns that the client is coming with. I believe that sticking to only one approach, i.e., either individualistic or collaborative will be limiting our skills as a therapist. We need to be flexible with our approaches depending on client’s needs

What is therapy to me? 

I feel that therapy is a mode of treatment that helps to shed light upon the concerns faced by clients and equips them to come out of their distress independently. Therapy works when the client is also willing for treatment. It also depends on the skills and expertise of the therapist. I believe that sometimes, psychotherapy works better than medication.

Therapeutic approach:

My approach is to first establish a rapport with the client, to create a safe and comfortable environment where the client can communicate freely. Then listening to the client and allowing him or her to ventilate. I prefer collaborative approach which will also include the client’ needs and views and the therapists opinion. I am open to honest suggestions about my treatment, any client can share any concerns or difficulties with the treatment process with me and I generally respect that. There have been lot of successful stories in my journey as a therapist which makes me happy and satisfied at the end of the day.
